7:03 am
maria: and paris this morning -- first this morning, a senate vote is coming week or next as democrats attempt to codify roe v. wade into law as protesters surround the homes of supreme court justices this weekend to force change. senator schumerer tried to move abortion legislation forward in february but fell short of the 60 votes needed to overcome a filibuster. will it be different this time? joining me right now to discuss, texas senator ted cruz, a constitutional scholar who clerked for former supreme court justice william rehnquist. senator, it's great of you this morning. thanks very much for being here. >> good morning, maria. it's great to be with you. martha: -- can. maria: first, are you expecting a senate vote week or next, and what would be the result in your view? >> i think it's likely we'll have a vote in either this week or next, and schumer in all likelihood will bring back the same bill that we voted on earlier. that bill failed.
7:04 am
you know, it's interesting, he calls it a bill to codify roe v. wade, but that's not, in fact, what the bill does. it is a add call abortion bill which, sadly, reflects where today's democrats are. the bill that we voted on last are time is a bill that would strike down every reasonable, common sense restriction on abortion across the country. it would strike down restrictions on partial-birth a abortion, it would strike down restrictions on hate-term abortion, strike down provisions on taxpayer funding, it would strike down parental consent and noteification laws. and the amazing thing is that today's democratic party on the issue of abortion has gone to the extreme left like they've done on economics, embracing socialism, like heavy done on the border, embracing open borders. you take an issue like late-term abortion. only 6% of americans support abortion all the way up to the moment of birth. that is the position of today's democratic party. that is what we're going to vote
7:05 am
on. it's going to fail. he's not going to get the 60 votes he needs. he knows that. that is satisfying the left-wing constituency in the democrat party. and i've got to say, maria with, we are a long, long way from when bill clinton was president mt. state of the union he said he wanted abortion safe, legal and rare. now, i didn't agree with that saint then, but he was at least recognizing that abortion was something he wanted rare. today's democratic party doesn't believe that. they openly celebrate abortion as a wonderful thing. maria: yeah. i mean, look, you go back to what andrew cuomo, former golf -- governor of new york, did by saying no restrictions whatsoever, could happen until, you know, the ninth month. you also heard a similar sentiment this past week from tim ryan in ohio. since we're on the substance issue here, let's stay here because i want you to explain what this draft opinion says. it by no means says that awe
7:06 am
abortion will be illegal up until a certain point, right? it's up to the states, is what this draft opinion is suggesting. talk about that, because i want to get into other issues, and that is including the bullying and who leaked this to begin with. but first, stay on the substance of this right now. >> well, sure. the draft opinion, we don't know what the final opinion will be, but the draft opinion was written by justice sam alito, and a masterful opinion. it is careful, it is scholarly, it is historical. it walks through how for the first 185 years of our nation's history the question of abortion was decided by elected legislatures, decided primarily at the state level. and, listen, we all recognize abortion is an issue that is deeply personal, that is deeply motional, and it's an issue on which americans are sharply divided. there are very, very different views on what the appropriate rules should be. and for the first 185 years of
7:07 am
our nation's history, we resolved those in the elected legislatures. then in 19 is 73 -- 1973 seven unelected lawyers wearing black robes said, you silly voters, you don't get to decide. we mow better than you, and we're going to decree the answer for the entire country. and i think that decision in roe really caused an enormous amount of anger and frustration for the tens of millions of people who passionately care about this issue, who have been engaged in this issue. you had a these un-- these unelected judges saying your views don't matter, and there's no outlet for you to fight for them. if, in fact, court does overturn roe, the result is not that abortion is illegal across the country. the result is thatst up to the people, it's up to democracy. that will mean in bright blue states, states like missouri and california -- at least for the immediate future -- new york, we'll continue to see abortion on demand. maria: yeah.
7:08 am
>> -- in my home state of texas, we'll see some meaningful restrictions. and the restrictions will vary state by state, and they will reflect the values and the mores of the citizens in each state. and that's exactly how the framers of the constitution intended it. and justice alito's draft opinion explains that, that this returns the issue to the people so that we, the people, can decide what the right answer is. maria: yeah. i want to move on and get your take on who leaked this and the process with which anybody could have access to such information. we've got a graphic here of the justices who were nominated by a republican president and then the justices nominate by a democrat president. you were a law clerk for justice rehnquist. you mow who has access -- know who has access to this. tell us who you believe could have leaked this or whether or not this is a small pool and if we're going the find out. there is an investigation underway, correct? >> correct.
7:09 am
so let's start off with who has access to this opinion. it is a very small pool of suspects. the court itself is a small institution. it's a big building but small institution. in terms of who has access to opinions, you've really got the nine justices -- and i do not believe any justice did that. i think it would be unimaginable for a justice to do this -- and then you've got 36 law clerks. each justice has 4 law clerks. you might have a secretary or a clerical assistance is, but realistically it's not somebody like that because the leaker also knew confidential information about how the justices voted at conference. that is held incredibly close hold within the supreme court. when i was a law clerk for chief justice rehnquist, the rules were the same as they are now which is you do not take opinion drafts out of the building. all of the work is done in the building. that means midnight, 1:00, the law clerks will -- are all there
7:10 am
work at their desks. when you finish with the draft, every law clerk has a burn bag, it's a brown and red bag, you put it in there. it's later sealed, and it's shredded -- in fact, it's. >> is redd twice -- shredded twice and then it's burned. that's to protect decision making of the court. it is almost certainly one of those 36 law clerk, and i think it is almost certainly one of the 12 law clerks that are clerking for the 3 liberal justices. that is a small suspect pool. beyond that, look, you and i have both known at lot of supreme court clerks. many of them are book smart, very few of them are street smart. i'm confident we don't have a master criminal working at the court. i think they're -- already going to be electronic records, e-mails or texts, there's going to be personal meetings between one of those 12 law clerks and the reporters at issue here. there are also -- the supreme court has pretty serious
7:11 am
security measures designed forensically to ascertain where an opinion was printed, what printer produced it. so i believe in this investigation is going to uncover the leaker, and i think it's going to do so relatively quickly. maria: so who do you think it is? >> so i think it's one of those 12 law are clerks. and this is, this is the culmination of a multiyear campaign from senate democrats to politicize and destroy the court. and it's had many aspects. it featured chuck schumer standing on steps of the court calling out justices by name, threatening to unleash the whirlwind, that they won't know what hit them if they don't vote the way schumer wants. that's incredibly destructive to the court. it features senate democrats threatening to pack the supreme court, to add pour left-wing justices immediately -- four
7:12 am
left-wing justices immediately. and i think what happened here is you add had some left-wing, woke twit who decided that he or she was so upset, that they were going to violate the trust they owe to their justice, to the court, to the rule of law. and, maria, it is difficult to overstate just how destructive this is to the court. it's the most serious breach in the history of our nation -- maria: yeah. >> the court depends on trust to be able to deliberate and decide, and and this partisan activist who's going to be caught, who will be fired, who will be disbarred and, i hope, will be criminally prosecuted decided to destroy the court instead. maria: yeah. and the activism continues. i mean, we only are have 30 seconds here, senator, but did you want to say anything about the idea that you've got people outside people's homes trying to bully and change, change thinking? >> well, that was the intent of this clerk. we've got left-wing groups now
7:13 am
that have published the addresses of justices. the intent of this clerk was to bully, threaten and intimidate the justices into changing their votes. and it was shameful that the white house refused to condemn violent protest ors threatening the families of the supreme court. maria: yeah. >> it is disgraceful, and joe biden used to be chairman of the judiciary committee. he knows it's disgraceful. he's literally threatening the lives of these justices by the mob they're unleashing. it's the same thing we saw with black lives matter and antifa riots where the left e embraced them, and now they're embracing mob violence to get their partisan outcome. maria: really, really disheartening. when you come back, senator, you'll have to talk about your questioning antony blinken, i thought it was the masterful. senator, good to see you. thanks very much for being here. when we come back, you just heard it, divide and conquer. dr. ben carson is out with a new book, it's called "created equal." so why is the white house
7:14 am

7:19 am
there is a lot of people who are trying to divide us, divide us on the basis of race, income, age, religion, gender, you name it, divide and conquer. and we go back through the history of race in america not starting at even 1619, but going back to the 1500s and bringing it all the way up to today and looking at those relationships. and understanding that it's complex, but that we as a nation have made enormous progress on race. just in my lifetime things is have changed dramatically. for those who say that it isn't any different, that we haven't made progress, it's very, very disingenuous. and now looking at this abortion issue that's going on, a lot of people don't realize that planned parenthood start by margaret sanger who was a eugenicist. she wanted to limit the numbers of black and hispanic people.

7:25 am
dwiegding us rather than something else? what's your take on the minority community's support, for example, of the gop? >> well, interestingly enough, of identify seen -- i've seen a significant increase in the amount of minority support i used to go to conservative gather gatherings, and i would be the only black face there. now there are a lot of black faces there and hispanic faces because they're seeing the things that actually work for them. and that's really the key, education. and, you know, we're blaming everything, some people want to blame everything on systemic racism. for instance, the wealth gap exists because of systemic racism. but interestingly enough, there are black peoe who do very well in this country. nigerians, ghanaians, others, and they have back skips. but what you'll notice in -- black kins. the bachelor's degree is the baseline, that's where they
7:26 am
start, and a lot of emphasis on family and family structure. and if you look at traditional black american families, you'll also see very little in the way of wealth gap. so maybe we're looking at the wrong things. and i think a lot of minorities are starting to recognize that. they're opening their eyes. they're not just listening to so-called leaders and slavishly poll what they tell them -- follow what hay tell them. maria: yeah. in fact, they're living it. hay saw a big change with opportunity zones which is something you led in the trump administration. >> absolutely. maria: in fact, it moved the needle, and they came out to vote as a result. >> and they a saw a lot of the things that were done in the previous administration which were things that were done for everybody with the belief that a rising tide floats all boats, and that's so important. and i just want to say, you know, on whole abortion issue, you know, i mentioned how margaret sanger was a
7:27 am
eugenicist. i also find it very interesting that if someone kills a mr. president woman -- a pregnant woman, they get charged with two murders. but if you just kill the baby, it's okay. i don't understand that. that doesn't make any sense. and there's a lot of things that don't make sense because we're politicizing them and not using the incredible brains that god gave us to figure out things -- maria: wow. >> -- to actually work together to come up with solutions that work for a diverse society. maria: that is a really good point, and i'm glad you made it. and the other point that i think is so really critical to make is we cannot forget history. i mean, all of this, you know, craziness about knocking down statues and forgetting our history, right now you've got russia rehearsing an annual world war ii victory parade. this is what's happening many russia. that parade is supposed to be on tomorrow, and yet look at what's going on in ukraine. we should mention that first
7:28 am
lady jill biden went to ukraine -- >> yes. maria: -- and has visited in ukraine, so we want to point that out. but at the same time the, why are we trying to erase important moments in history as bad as they are to show how much progress country has made? >> and we know a what happens -- we know what happens when we don't take an active role. the united states is blessed with a leadership role in the world, but when we don't take that, the despots begin to i arise. and they will arise. and i just have to mention this, we wouldn't have the situation going on in ukraine if we had a little smarter energy policies. we handed putin the keys to energy, and he's using them in a very deleterious way. you know, elections have consequences as some people have said, and people have got to start understanding who they're voting for. don't just go into that booth and look for the name that looks
7:29 am
familiar, you know? it might be -- i know that same. i know that name. we've got to put the right people in who understand world politics, who understand compassion for other human beings, who understand our constitution, who understand what freedom is all about, and welcome change this. it's not too late. maria: yeah. and also, by the way, understand what matters. look at where inflation is right now. we're going to get another inflation reading in the upcoming week, and we're going to preview that in our next segment, but understand what policies two actually matter to the american people. dr. carson, it's good to see you this morning. >> absolutely. maria: thank you, sir. and congrats on the book, a must-read.

7:38 am
today, this is what the democrats told you they would do, and they are doing it. they have destroyed our economy, our country, our freedom of speech, and you can see that with the last. that's why they're coming up with the disinformation board. truth social, my father's social media app, launches. people are on there. the engagement that people like myself are seeing on that with a fraction of the followers that we have on some of the other social media platforms is through the roof because people want to have the discourse, but they're been censored. you see the outrage over elon musk getting involved in twitter. oh, my god! imagine they could perhaps turn down someone's volume like they haven't been doing that to conservatives for a decade now. these people are living in a bubble. they're not looking for a level playing field, maria, they're looking for an advantage. they are always fellowed when -- thrilled when they have that advantage as hoe they don't already, hay control the mainstream media, they have basically all of big tech,
7:39 am
another rl dollar -- trillion dollar enterprise. they had all of social media until truth social and then elon musk said, hey, how about free speech on twitter as well? oh, my god! the outrage, the pappic, and that's -- panic, that's why you see the leak about the supreme court, they have nothing to motivate their people. the american people are awake to it. heir starting to see what's real. they saw what happened to the algorithms the second the musk thing was announced, they saw the engagement they're getting on social, and they realize they've been in a rigged game for very long. they see it. and you can no longer ooh hide it, maria. despite the disinformation board, i don't know of a despotic regime that didn't have a disinformation board, but that's what the democrats are. maria: yeah. >> they want total until. -- control. doesn't matter about the truth. hay will dictate what -- they will dictate what it is. there's no accountability, there's no mea culpas, there eau
7:40 am
o's nothing -- there's nothing. just to make sure that the stories that matter, people can see. so download for yourselves on iphone or android, it's 100% free. but the news like the hunter biden story that was russian disinformation until it wasn't, once they got what they wanted, the truth no longer mattered so now they can say it's the true. they see the disaster that joe's, biden's administration is now zaire haying, hey, we'll throw him under the bus now. those stories existed. but the powers that be made sure that people never actually saw them. maria: yeah. >> so we have to make sure that people have access to this kind of information, so whether it's true social, whether it's mxm news, we are pushing back, and people are finally awake, maria -- maria: yeah. well, you've been doing a lot. i mean -- yeah, you've been doing a lot. here's josh hawley's tweet on the disinformation board: fire the mary poppins of disinformation and dissolve this
7:41 am

great day here. maria: a lot of excitement in miami today and every day, it seems. >> that's right. maria: what are your thoughts on the latino vote? what are your constituents concerned with today? >> i think, you know, there's a misperception that hispanic voters across the country only care about one issue, which is immigration, and i think that's absolutely false. i think hispanic voters across the country care about the things that everybody cares about. they want prosperity for themselves and for their children, they want, you know, low taxes, they want to be safe in their communities. and i think it's aa parent that the republican party is addressing those issues not only at the city level, but certainly at the national level, and it's resonating. i remember seeing an article recently, a martial publication that showed -- national publication that hispanics are trending, about to reach 50% for the first time in a long time. so i think it's indicative of the fact that the republican platform, republican talking
7:49 am
points and republican policies are resonating with hispanics across not only miami, but certainly across the country. maria: yeah. and one other issue is inflation that we're talking about all the time, mayor suarez are. i mean, look at where we are. 40-year-high inflation. in the upcoming week, we're going to be getting another reason. that's what we're focused on, on fox business, all hands on deck on "mornings with maria" on wednesday morning when we get the consumer price indeck, and that's going -- index. how important is this to the latino vote, and do you believe that you've seen a significant change just in the last few years from your constituents in terms of priorities? >> yeah. look, i think inflation is, you know, one of the number one issues right now in the country. i was recently with the mayor of austin, denver and new york, and they're seeing 50% increase in rents across the country. and that's worth about $2.1

trillion of federal spending that sill has not -- still has not hit the streets, the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill still has not been disbursed you said so it's a scare -- disgust bursted, so it's a scary -- disbursed. it's a scary situation. people are not earning a return on investment, and they're losing purchasing power, so money's literally being taken out. and that is a big issue for hispanic communities across the country. they feel that government spending is out of control, and they want a smaller government, they want lower taxes, and hay want a pro-family agenda. maria: and this is another reason why so many people are packing up and moving to florida. in particular, they're moving to miami to get the growth and exciting story of your leadership. we're going to take a short break and talk a bit about what you're doing in miami and why this flight to florida is so strong. i'm talking with miami mayor francis suarez. we'll be right back.

not, we actually have surpluses. we actually balance our budget which is something that governments don't do across the country. we've kept crime down. we've increased funding for police while other cities have decrease funding for the police. our homicide rate went down by 23% last year. 37% down this year, which is obviously a counter-narrative to something that's been happening across the country. and the third thing is we've welcomed innovators to miami. we are number one in tech job growth, number one in tech job migration, and we're number one in wage growth. and all because we're fundamentally free market. you know, many of the people in miami were exiled from their countries of birth which, unfortunately, got taken over by communist dictators. and so we're traumatized by that experience, and we're fundamentally a free market, we believe in the american dream. we think that the next generation should provide a new american cream for this country, you know, one -- dream for this country, one that creates

prosperity not only for ourselves, but for our children and grandchildren. we're at a major inflection point with the change from one generation to another and also with the change from the industrial economy to the digital economy. and that's something that miami has taken advantage of and, frankly, this country can take advantage of. 85% of the population of america is in america's cities. 91% of the gdp produced comes from american cities, and i think we can scale our success across the country. maria: well, governor desantis has also pushed back on corporate wokeness. any thoughts on what the situation is with disney? is that going to hurt miami? >> in miami we're certainly fundamentally not into this sort of woke culture, you know? we're into free markets. we believe -- maria: okay. >> -- in compassion, and we believe that we can help, you know, those, our brothers and sisters who need help. we have the -- [inaudible] rate since 2013.
